Let’s move into our first major Infrastructure Solution: The Azure App Service.

The Azure App Service is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering in Azure that allows you to develop mainly Web Apps, Mobile Apps, and RESTful APIs under a unified solution backed by full managed Azure VMs. The idea is to choose your plan, write your app, and deploy. Because this is a PaaS solution, a lot of the IaaS ground work is done for you. Picking a plan directly correlates to the feature set you have available and ultimately the cost of using the service.

You don’t have to memorize every little detail of these plans for the exam, but try and get the big picture of how the plans differ from one another and how to configure a plan. When you configure an Azure App Service plan you choose a name, region, and pricing tier. There are mainly Basic, Standard, and Premium Plans, however there is a Free and Shared Plan as well.

When choosing a plan you want to pay attention to the number of scaling instances which allow you to scale the number of VMs backing your App Service Plan, the number of Deployment Slots, and the frequency of backups.

It’s important to note that the Basic plan has no Deployment Slots. There is also a premium offering called the App Service Environment which gives you a dedicated, premium, isolated and secure environment for your Azure Apps, but of course it comes with a Premium price tag.
